Headache Central.

I am so tired of this headache.
I have had a dull headache for 5 days now. It was mainly concentrated in the back of my head, neck and shoulders. Then late Monday night I was feeling tingling in my jaw and lips. I called the doctor on Tuesday to see if I can get in, they couldn't fit me in until this morning.
When I left this morning, I got stuck behind a bus (of course they stopped at every road to pick up kids). There was a line a mile long when I walked into the office so of course I wound up being late for the appointment. When I actually got to see her, I told her the problem, she did a few things with my head, neck arms, legs and feet. She is pretty sure it is a tension headache (as several people told me that is what they thought). She said the tingly jaw is more associated with Migraines but I am not sensitive to light or sound so I am still not completely sure what is causing that.
She is having me take 4 Advil 3 times a day. Yup that is 12 Advil a day. So far I have taken 8 and still not helping. She also prescribed two other drugs to take at night, she says when I take them it will make me very sleepy. She initially wanted me to take them this morning but there is no way I could take them and still deal with the Z man.
I can not believe it has been 5 days now and I still feel like crud. I hope that when I take this stuff tonight it knocks out the problem and I can go on with my life. I seem to be getting annoyed with every little thing and not being able to deal with anything. That is not making for a happy household.
